WHY ?

Why would anyone chose to die or experience hurt, pain ,and sickness is just not logical, when God tells us, ‘ to cast our burdens,aches,pain,and problems upon Him,and He will sustain us,and never permit the righteous to be moved’ (Psalms 55 :22);Then Jesus confirms it in Matthew 11 :28-30,where He tells us,” Come unto me,all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest….” ,does anyone have a better offer.

Why would anyone not believe that there is a God ? When the universe portray His splendor,as a matter of fact Psalms 19 :1-6 explains it better than I can,”The heavens declare the glory of God;and the firmament shows His handiwork,day after day they continue to speak;night after night they make Him known…”,So who are we to question our creator? Just consider the Heavens,the work of His fingers,the moon and the stars which,which He ordained…(Psalms 8:3-9).

Why would you choose to live for yourself ? Do your own thing ? when you know for a fact that if God is not involved in your endeavors or plans ,you and whatever you do is destined for failure ? He tells us to trust in Him with all our heart,and lean not unto our own understanding,and to  acknowledge Him in all our ways ,so that He can direct our paths  ( Proverbs 3 :5 &6),how come some people understand and trust God,yet some just don’t get it,in spite of all their failures.

Help me to understand why anyone would not accept the perfect gift of God ?His only begotten son Jesus Christ  (John 3 :16) tell us so;Is there someone with a better offer or gift of eternal life,someone who loves you more? Who sacrifice more ? My friends John 14 :6 tells us that Jesus is the only way to God,the only truth about God,and the only one that can offer or grant us eternal life,John 6:40 and Colossians 1 :19-20 confirms this.

It’s mind-boggling,how some people would rather suffer than trust God,would rather go to hell than heaven,would rather be in bondage than be free,would rather burn with the devil and his angels,than live in paradise with Jesus;Listen you could change all that today,just go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions,it will be the best decision you ever make.

I pray that the Lord will fill you with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom,and spiritual understanding that you will walk worthy of the Lord and fully pleasing Him,in Jesus name,all glory,praise,honor,and thanks go to God for using me to get His message out to His people,in Jesus name,Amen.

What’s the most enjoyable hour of your typical weekday?

What is the most enjoyable hour of your week. Is it the time you spend with God, your spouse, children or relatives? Is it when you get away from the hustle and bustle of the day? Is it while singing in the shower, or is it making love to your spouse? What ever you think or say, just remember God should be first, before everyone and everything.

That’s why people invented the term T.G.I.F. thank God its friday. The phrase was so truthful they named a restaurant with that slogan.However with God, if God is in your life, you never look forward to friday, you look forward for the next day, to see how much blessing He is going to pour out for you. We already know that His grace and mercy is automatic, and it’s fresh daily.

Christians should never look forward to Fridays, because we have a God who will keep us in perfect peace  when we keep our minds on Him (God),and trust him (Isaiah 26:3). As Christians we should not be anxious for Friday to come like the ungodly or non-believers do,we should be singing the song,”One day at a time sweet Jesus, that’s all I am asking from you, show me the way, help me today, just to take one day at a time.”

Philippians 4 :6-7 tells us to “be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your request be made known unto God, and the peace of God, which surpasses all  understanding, shall keep your hearts and mind through Christ Jesus”. Therefore, your most enjoyable hour of a typical weekday should be with God, when He is revealing His plans for your day, did you forget that God owns and controls your day.

If you never have this kind of experience, then you need to rededicate your life to God through His son Jesus Christ or accept Him for the first time. Just go to the top of this blog to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. It will be the best day of your life, and instead of looking forward to Friday, you will take one day at a time, and rejoice in the Lord.

All praises, glory, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to write this blog informing His people; may His grace, peace, and love be yours now and forever in Jesus name, Amen.

PARTIALITY OR DESERVING

If we are not careful, my friends, the devil will have us thinking that God is partial. Let me explain why in a scenario that you will understand: your friend goes to church like you do and everything they ask of God they receive. Unfortunately, you are still on the waiting list,still waiting on that house or that spouse or even that car. You realize that the more you ask the more others seem to get blessed but not you. Then you ask yourself, is it fair?

This is the number one trick of the enemy: the lust of the eyes, flesh and the pride of life ( 1 John 2:16). If you look closely you realize that all three occupy your mind so much that it consumes you and with that consumption you can’t hear from God because the road he needs to communicate with you is blocked and your ears are clogged like a sewer line.

Why do you think you deserve Gods blessings more than the other person? Do you know what a person does privately to get blessings? What their parents or grandparents did for them to receive blessing? I am sure many of Abrahams descendants don’t deserve Gods blessings but He made a promise to Abraham and God doesn’t break his promises( 2 Peter 3:9;Numbers 23:19).

So you think you are entitled to Gods blessings, may I ask what you are doing for you to feel  that you deserve them? How many times a day do you pray for more than ten minutes? How often do you read the bible? Do you acknowledge Him in all your ways? Do you seek Him and his righteousness so that He can bless you? Do you know His commandments and are you keeping them all? Do you present your body as a living sacrifice that is Holy and acceptable to Him or have your sins separated you from God (Isaiah 59 :1 &2)?

Why do you feel that you deserve Gods unlimited favor when you are not living up to His standards. If you are not obedient to His word in the Bible or the standards His son Jesus Christ has set for us do you still think you deserve his favor. Speaking of son did you accept Gods ultimate gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ ?( John 3 :16-17) . Now you may believe that God is partial but was our father almighty partial when He sent Jesus to die for our sins? What in all of creation could you want or even could compare to what Jesus gave up for us? His sacrifice for us was for us to receive forgiveness from our sins, to have a closer relationship with God and to have Eternal Life.

Have you thanked Him today? Have you thanked him for opening your eyes? We have to wise up my brothers and sisters because He did not have to sacrifice himself for you. How often do you praise Him or honored Him first with the things He gives you? So realistically, why would He give you the desires of your heart or open the windows of heaven and pour out His blessings upon you when you are not doing the things He requires from you? How do you expect him to give you what you want when you don’t talk with Him unless you want to acquire something or need help with an issue.

In Psalms  37:25 David says this; he was young and now that he is old;he have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread’. You do not deserve His blessings because you are righteous, you deserve his blessings when you are righteous according to His (Gods) standards. Examine yourself and realize that if you are not receiving His blessings there is another reason and NOT because God is partial. The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle and easy, to be entreated full of mercy and good fruits,without partiality and without hypocrisy (James 3:17).God does not keep good things from His children (Proverbs 3:27).

If you are not one of Gods children through His only begotten son Jesus Christ then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions. To God be the glory, honor, praise and thanks. Lord thank you for using me to minister to your children and thank you for the adjustments you will be making to my life and hopefully to your friends.

GETTING RICH

Did you know that money cannot buy your way into heaven or if you are a very unfortunate soul, out of hell? Yet most people love the idea of getting rich. They read books and listen to everyone who has an idea on how to get rich but they fail to hear what God has to say on acquiring riches or seeking it before Him.

Now keep in mind that God never said not to acquire riches but He warns you not to love it. Why you may ask because the love of money is the root of all types of evil. Some people are so eager for it that they have this craving for riches and because they end up drifting from God they inherit more grief or sorrows (1 Timothy 6:10).

Now I am not knocking anyone for craving money, I used to be one of those money grabbing, money seeking disillusioned fools. Then I realized that Godliness with contentment is great gain. I brought nothing into this world and it is a proven fact that once I depart from this world I can’t take anything out (1 Timothy 6 :6-7). Now let me ask you this, have you ever seen a moving company or a U-haul truck following a funeral procession? Want to know why? It’s because you can’t take anything with you when you die.

Earthly riches have no use or value to us in Heaven nor hell. There is no currency exchange. Do not take my word as the gospel, just listen to what Luke 9:25 says,

“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?”

All the pleasures in this world are just gratifications of the flesh, which, in the long run, turns to greed. Pleasures eventually take your mind, focus and thoughts off of Christ which is detrimental to us. King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 2: 1-11 tells us that he tried it all with all the wealth he accumulated, yet it did nothing for him. It was not satisfying, fulfilling, nor gratifying. He said it was like chasing the wind.

God wants us to enjoy the things He has provided for us and we must remember that everything we have and hold dear is from the hand of God. lets face it everyone, without God we would have nothing. The things we work hard for and would do anything to accomplish or recieve are just temporary luxurys and these things do not last forever.  What does last forever though is salvation and you can only get salvation through the acceptance of Gods only son Jesus Christ. Don’t take my word for it just read John 3:16-17 and John 14:6.

Now if it is your desire to accept Gods gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ then you need to go to the top of this blog. Once there click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions. All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God the father almighty. Thank you lord for using me to get your message out through this blog.

GOD IS WATCHING

Most people in the world don’t realize that God is watching and writing down everything that we do whether good or bad (2 Corinthians 5:10). If you lie, cheat and steal you may have others believing that you are not THAT person but consider this; You can not fool God. Realize that if you are not punished now than beyond  a shadow of a doubt you will be punished later because God records all events. 

What people who are not faithful to their wives or husbands, cheaters, should realize is that sooner or later your past actions come to haunt you.  All cheaters believe that they get away with their transgressions but then many things occur at once. A child, an innocent, that came into existence outside the marriage tells the world you were not faithful by just being alive. The cheater may unfortunately receive some type of venereal disease from a couple of hours of fun that will not be worth a trip to the clinic. People, realize that something you do always reveals the truth to your unsuspecting spouse and if you feel you got away with it, keep this in mind: God records everything and you will have to answer to Him later.

We must come to the realization that we can not hide anything from God because He is always watching. Remember He never slumbers or sleep ( Psalm 121:4). When I think about trying to hide things from God I remember a passage David said in Psalms 139: 7-10;

 “Where can I go from your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the utter most parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me and Your right hand shall hold me.”

Then, to the prophet Jeremiah, God says this;

“Am I a god who is only in one place? Do you think I cannot see what they are doing? Can anyone hide from Me? Am I not everywhere in all the heavens and earth? (New  Living Translation)” [Jeremiah 23:23-24]

 In Psalm 33:13 – 2, David reminds us that, “The Lord looks from heaven; and sees the whole human race, from His throne he observes all who live on the earth. He made their hearts so He understands everything they do…But the Lord watches over those who fear Him, those who rely on His unfailing love, He rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine. We depend on the Lord alone to save us, only He can help us, protecting us like a shield. In Him our hearts rejoice for we are trusting in His Holy name.”

My friends, whether you are a Christian, a believer, or nothing at all remember God is watching and recording everything whether good, bad or indifferent. Lets live a life that’s pleasing and acceptable to God (Romans 12:1-2), so that the things that are recorded are good and we can hear him say well done thou good and faithful servant.

If for whatever reason you don’t know God or His son Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and savior then you need to do three things. Firstly go to the top of this blog, secondly click on to the salvation page and last but certainly not least follow the instructions. It will be a glorious day in heaven and the best decision you have ever made. All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God the father almighty. Lord, thank you for using me to write this message.

DOUBTERS AND DISPUTERS

No matter how hard the truth is staring people in the face and there is actual concrete evidence to support your story there will still be doubters and disputers. Unfortunately these are the people, doubters and disputers, who cause division and confusion among members. Let me point out a fact for you, most if not all the things in the Bible are spiritually discerned so it is natural that a person, who is not in tune with their faith, will not get it and they can not receive it ( 1 Corinthians 2:14).

In 1 Corinthians 2:9-13 we notice the process in which wisdom, knowledge, understanding, revelation and discernment is transferred from the mind of God, to the mind of  the  believer. Do not forget that through Jesus Christ, Gods only begotten son, we are His adopted children. John 1:12 tell us this; ‘But as many as received Him ( Jesus) ,to them gave he power to become children of God, even to them that believe on His name.

It is those that come with more questions than answers. Those who can never figure anything out and have to rationalize as well as analyze everything. These people are the  doubters and disputants in society. They will not accept the fact that one plus one equals two and not three. They want to know why they weren’t born rich? They want to know why they are not pretty enough? They want to know why Jesus is the messiah, the savior and the only begotten son of God? The reason they ask these questions, my friends, is  because they will not accept the truth and with them not accepting the truth they will not accept Jesus. Realize that Jesus is the only way to get truth as well as life. Plus you will not get to God without going through Jesus. It tells us this in John 14:6.

For to which of the angels did He(God) ever say: ‘you are my son, today I have begotten you’ or ‘I will be to Him(Jesus) a Father and He shall be to me a son’.(Hebrews 1:5). God never intended for us to doubt or dispute His word because He, the creator of all things, does not lie. In Numbers 23: 19 it states:

 God is not man, that he should lie,or a son of man, that he should change his mind.Has he said, and will he not do it?Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

 Hebrews 6:18 confirms this by stating;

so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.

 My friends we must also note that He (God) is not slack concerning His promises, ( 2 Peter 3:9), so the doubt and disputes that we see coming forth are of the devil who wants more company in hell.

Behold, the Lords hand is not so shortened that it cannot save; neither His ears heavy that it cannot hear. But your iniquities(sins) have separated you from your God and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear                (Isaiah 59:1-2).

Let me also remind you that your thoughts and ways are certainly not like His(Isaiah 55:8-9).

In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways but in these last days He has spoken to us by His son Jesus whom He has appointed  heir of all things. The son (Jesus) is the radiance of Gods glory and the exact representation of His being sustaining all things by His powerful word. After He had provided purification for our sins He  sat down at the right hand of His Majesty in heaven (Hebrews 1 :1-3).

If you want to doubt and dispute those facts go right ahead because you are heading to a place that is void of all hope. However if you want to know and accept Jesus then you need to go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions. All glory, praise, honor and thanks go to God our savior. Lord thank you for using me to write your  message. May God, our Father, and the Lord, Jesus Christ, give you grace, peace and everything you need to receive and understand His word.Amen.

TRUE MESSENGERS

True messengers of God don’t seek the glory, fame or fortune, because it’s not their story and they can’t save, heal or deliver anyone without Jesus Christ. They are just vessels or messengers, God uses to manifest His presence, His power, and His love for His people. Some preach out of jealousy, some out of rivalry, some out of greed and the monetary benefits that goes with it; remember God is watching.

However, true messengers of God be it apostles, pastors, preachers, teachers or evangelists always preach out of a pure heart, with pure motives and concern for other people’s soul (Philippians 1:15). A true messenger should have a heart and mind like Luke 4:18, which says, “The spirit of the Lord is upon me; because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken – hearted, to preach deliverance to the captive and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Jesus commissioned us in Mark 16:15 to ,”Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature,” not some watered down message on prosperity; because prosperity can’t save you. Nor to be entertained by people, show me in the Bible where Jesus was entertaining the crowd, He fed them both physical and spiritual food, Jesus did not compete with anyone. His main purpose and mission was to save souls for the kingdom. Is that what you are doing, it does not matter if you are a pastor, elder, or minister your duty is to save souls for the kingdom, tell people how to get out of darkness, and operate in Gods light.

If you don’t know God or His beloved son Jesus Christ, then you are going to perish forever, John 3 : 16-17 confirms this, so if you want to know God you must go through His son (Jesus Christ). John 14 :6 tells us, that Jesus is the only way, so go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go directly to God for inspiring me to write His messages.
